"On the train for Reno..." Classic scene from Cukor's The Women (1939). Longer, better version of the scene here.
Yesterday I came across a Porter/Biddle 1st cousin 3x's removed, Alma Belle (Porter) Keating Lorenzen Pipher (1890-1953) and the information I got from a newspaper concerning her final divorce:
|Getting a divorce in Reno produced a memory trace--oh yes, that scene from The Women!|
I don't know if she drove there or took the train. She was living in Downey (Los Angeles), California at the time.
I highly recommend this movie if you like that fashion period, and if you like funny women. It's melodramatic, sexist, and racist (all the black women are maids) but it was a product of its time. I rented it at Amazon for about $3 (unfortunately it doesn't come with Prime membership).
